All too often, families discount the value of ceremony after the death of a loved one, and we certainly don’t want you to make that mistake. Coming together after a loss is a very essential part of the grieving process.
Complete Funeral Service
When you or your loved one has chosen to be buried, the ceremonies you design revolve around the casket being present. With our complete funeral service, traditions may be followed with a viewing, then a funeral service in our chapel or your church followed with a graveside committal. Or you could choose to have a visitation followed by a private family graveside with a memorial service without the casket present. Our customized tribute video can be played during the service or during the reception for everyone to share the memories of your loved one. The obituary and tribute video will be place on our website for friends and family that are not able to attend the ceremony. This options includes basic service fees, care and preparation of your loved one, use of our facilities and vehicles, filing the death certificate, embalming, online obituary placement, customized video tribute, and notifying Social Security are all included in our Complete Funeral Service.
There is no "tried and true" formula for honoring a life when burial has been selected. We're here to listen to your concerns, share your experience, and help you to arrive at the perfect way to gather together, whether that's before or after an interment in a cemetery of your choice.
Graveside Funeral Service
Another option is to have a graveside service at the cemetery either with or without a visitation at the funeral home. A reception at your loved ones favorite place or a gathering at home could be a great way to conclude the service. This option includes such things as basic service fees, transfer of your loved one to our facility, embalming, online obituary placement, customized tribute video, death certificate filing, and we also notify Social Security for you.
The immediate burial is designed for families that do not wish to have a ceremony. We will take care of bringing your loved one into our care at the funeral home, and getting the remains prepared for burial. The obituary will be placed on our website, we will file the death certificates, and notify Social Security. Our staff will transport your loved one to the cemetery of your choice for interment without family being present.
Complete Cremation Service
Cremation is another option for final disposition of remains. It's important to know that it does not limit the ways you can honor your loved one's life. We suggest that you have funeral or memorial service because the need for such a healing experiene is not lessened by the decision to be cremated. The options include having a visitation, with a funeral service to follow, with the option of the casket being present. After the cremation takes place a private family graveside committal may be considered. Creating a permanent place for those left behind to connect and remember helps families to find comfort long after the funeral. Such a special place helps everyone to heal, and move forward. In our modern society, many people express they don't receive enough time to grieve their losses. Our Complete Cremation Service includes our basic service fees, care and preparation of your loved one, use of our facilities and vehicles, filing the death certificate, embalming, the cremation process, online obituary placement, customized tribute video, and Social Security notification.
Cremation With Memorial
A memorial service or celebration of life can be designed as a tribute to the life that's been lived. During the service, the family can decide to have the urn displayed with pictures and memorabilia surrounding that helps those remember what a great life that was lived. The tribute video we create can also be used during the service, and during the reception following to remember all the good times you shared. If the cremation has already occurred, then a graveside committal may be considered too. Having a permanent place in a cemetery or columbarium can give family and friends a place to visit regularly. This provides a consistent place for generations to go to remember and commemorate important occasions, while providing future generations a memorable link to their history. Our Cremation with Memorial Service includes our basic service fees, care and preparation of your loved one, use of our facilities and vehicles, filing the death certificate, the cremation process, online obituary placement, customized tribute video, and Social Security notification.
With our direct cremation, your loved one will be transported to our facility once the death occurs. The direct cremation is designed for families that do not wish to have a ceremony. This option includes care and preparation of your loved one, filing the death certificate, obtaining necessary permits, Social Security notification, and the cremation process. We own and operate our crematory, so your loved one will always be in our care. Once the cremation has occurred, the family can choose to have the urn placed at a cemetery of their choice. Some families consider cremation jewelry, which allows them to keep their loved one close to them forever. The opportunities are endless to honor your loved one, and we can help you through the decisions that will give tribute to a life well lived.
You Can Never Go Back and Do it Over

We want you to honor your loved one in a way that allows you to look back, years from now, and be thankful that you did the best you could to honor their life. Creating a ceremony that calls together the hearts and minds of all who loved them is a gift to everyone involved. A gift of memories, a gift of healing...a truly priceless gift of peace-of-mind.
